Co-Designer Still Hopes To Fly The Single-Person Suborbital
After three years in development and one unsuccessful launch
attempt, a rocket built by two Danish inventors has made a
successful unmanned test flight.
Copenhagen Suborbitals Group had hoped the rocket would achieve
an altitude of about 9 miles, but it was unclear if that objective
was reached. The launch was made from a launch pad built on a barge
off the island of Bornholm on Friday at 1632 local time.

mission in the near future. He said he would wait until there were
three or four "problem free" flights before he would attempt to
become the first Dane in space.
